Embarking on a regular exercise programme will give you a real feeling of wellbeing, help you work towards your own fitness goal and give you and your colleagues a common interest away from the boardroom. Best of all, getting into the habit of exercising at lunch means you’ll always find time to take on the challenge.
Lead the team
From the boss to the new boy, everybody’s equal in the Garmin #4miler until they prove otherwise. So set a positive example and encourage the others to liven up their lunch breaks. Perhaps it could be a teambuilding task to revive a weary workforce or help you discover new ways to communicate with colleagues?
Not only will your body benefit from regular workouts but the business will too. With revived enthusiasm comes a sharper focus on the role. Breaking away from the desk is good once in a while, especially if you return with new ideas and a renewed vigour for work. The fresh air will leave you feeling more alert, and the opportunity to communicate with people beyond the door-to-desk route will help teams to bond and improve communication between departments.
Although you’re working out in your workday, you’ll reap the benefits well beyond office hours. If you’re feeling the pressure, don’t rant at your next-desk neighbour – channel your frustration on a refreshing run. Escape from the office drone and your desk phone, get a change of scenery and seek out some thinking space where nobody can interrupt you – unless they join the #4miler too!
